It's not apparent from your post what the dropdowns are or how they are related. That said, see the attachments to post #12 & #15.

Paul,


Your attachment to post 15 does not have a "Selections" content control. Did you attach the correct file?

It's a kluge, but you can create a pseudo multi-select CC using the OnEnter event and a userform. See attached.

The code is in the document. Download it and follow the instructions in post #2. Without both the code and the document, the code lacks context.

Hi Macropod,

I am working with a document that will have a ton of dependant content control drop down boxes. I followed your example and successfully created my first one. But when I duplicated the code and changed the values of the master and slave fields, I got a error.

see compile error:
Dropbox - compile error.png - Simplify your life

below is my VBA code, what am I doing wrong?


Code:
Option Explicit
Dim StrOption As String
Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnEnter(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl)
If CCtrl.Title = "Spouse" Then StrOption = CCtrl.Range.Text
End Sub

Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnExit(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl, Cancel As Boolean)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim i As Long, StrOut As String
With CCtrl
  If .Title = "Spouse" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Yes"
        StrOut = "Spouse is able and available,Spouse is able and partially available,Spouse is able but not available,Spouse is available but not able,Spouse is IHSS Recipient,Other"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("A&A")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub



Option Explicit
Dim StrOption As String
Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnEnter(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl)
If CCtrl.Title = "Minor" Then StrOption = CCtrl.Range.Text
End Sub


Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnExit(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl, Cancel As Boolean)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim i As Long, StrOut As String
With CCtrl
  If .Title = "Minor" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Recipient is not a minor"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case "Yes"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "Parent is prevented from full-time employment due to child's needs, Recipient is under the care of a legal guardian"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("MinorExp")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

You cannot simply duplicate the code as you have done. For example, you can have only one instance of:
Code:
Option Explicit
Dim StrOption As String
and, likewise, there can only be one Sub of a given name. The correct way of addressing the latter is by combining the Subs. Thus:
Code:
Option Explicit
Dim StrOption As String

Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnEnter(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl)
With CCtrl
  Select Case .Title
    Case "Spouse", "Minor": StrOption = .Range.Text
  End Select
End With
End Sub

Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnExit(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl, Cancel As Boolean)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim i As Long, StrOut As String
With CCtrl
  If .Title = "Spouse" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Yes"
        StrOut = "Spouse is able and available,Spouse is able and partially available,Spouse is able but not available,Spouse is available but not able,Spouse is IHSS Recipient,Other"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("A&A")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If
  If .Title = "Minor" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Yes", "Recipient is not a minor"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "Parent is prevented from full-time employment due to child's needs, Recipient is under the care of a legal guardian"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("MinorExp")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Thank you for that clarification.
So if I'm adding more drop downs, then am I correct in assuming that I can just duplicate the following code, put it on the bottom of existing code and modify values to correspond to new content controls

EXISTING CODE:
Code:
Option Explicit
Dim StrOption As String

Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnEnter(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl)
With CCtrl
  Select Case .Title
    Case "Spouse", "Minor": StrOption = .Range.Text
  End Select
End With
End Sub

Private Sub Document_ContentControlOnExit(ByVal CCtrl As ContentControl, Cancel As Boolean)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim i As Long, StrOut As String
With CCtrl
  If .Title = "Spouse" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Yes"
        StrOut = "Spouse is able and available,Spouse is able and partially available,Spouse is able but not available,Spouse is available but not able,Spouse is IHSS Recipient,Other"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("A&A")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If

  If .Title = "Minor" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Yes", "Recipient is not a minor"
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "Parent is prevented from full-time employment due to child's needs, Recipient is under the care of a legal guardian"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("MinorExp")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub


3rd Content drop down
Code:
  If .Title = "3rd dropddown name" Then
    If StrOption = .Range.Text Then Exit Sub
    Select Case .Range.Text
      Case "Yes", "blah....."
        StrOut = "N/A"
      Case "No"
        StrOut = "answer if no"
      Case Else
        .Type = wdContentControlText
        .Range.Text = ""
        .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End Select
    With ActiveDocument.SelectContentControlsByTitle("MinorExp")(1)
      .DropdownListEntries.Clear
      For i = 0 To UBound(Split(StrOut, ","))
        .DropdownListEntries.Add Split(StrOut, ",")(i)
      Next
      .Type = wdContentControlText
      .Range.Text = ""
      .Type = wdContentControlDropdownList
    End With
  End If
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
I noticed that the code resets and forces the child drop down to show as "bounding box" instead of "start/end tag."
how can I set it so that the code either leaves this setting alone to whatever was original assigned to the drop down, or, if not possible, then specify that it should be a start/end tag"?

Basically, yes. You might also want to add a corresponding reference to the additional content control in Document_ContentControlOnEnter macro also.

I have no idea what you mean by that.

The code is already written to only reset/update a dependent dropdown if it's parent is reset/updated.
